The thought of any apparel going geeky sounds weird, so it comes as a pleasant surprise that the Noon Solar bags not only look uber-chic but also add functionality like a solar panel. The Willow, Cortland and Logan bags have a two-sided design so you can wear the “weather-proof” solar panel facing outwards or inwards. The power bank of the panel fully charges after a bout of six to eight hours in the sun. You can charge your DAPs, cellphones and other gadgets courtesy of the voltage selector on the pack. Entire exterior and interior constructed from Bavarian sourced, chrome-free, naturally tanned and dyed, full-grain cowhide leather and naturally dyed hemp cotton blend. The bags include wall charging adapter for Power Bank, 4 USB phone tips, 6-volt boost required for some cell phones, USB cable, iPod cable and User manual.
The Willow, Cortland and Logan bags retail for $274, $383 and $412, respectively, and are available in a couple of shades as well.
